Excellent wedding planner!

Mel is so friendly and helpful. She had so many good ideas for our wedding and was always ready to help with planning and organising our big day.

We loved how quickly Mel responded to our questions or any issues that came up and it was reassuring having her there on the day, even going the extra mile to blow up our balloons and help me with my buttonhole!

Thoroughly recommended!

Mel’s organisational skills, and how well she understood exactly what we were looking for, made our September 2019 Wedding perfect.

Mel’s organisational skills, and how well she understood exactly what we were looking for, made our September 2019 Wedding perfect.
She took the time to get to know us both very well. Mel guided us as to what would work, and as importantly, what wouldn't!
Her experience and professional approach every step of the way, including on the day itself, meant that, unusually, we were both completely relaxed!
Everything ran like clockwork and we loved every minute of the day! Thank you Mel!

Highly recommend

We have had so many compliments on our wedding venue, food and band, none of which would have been possible without Mel’s organisation and creativity. I lived abroad at the time of organising the wedding, and so put many of the decisions entirely in Mel’s hands. She did not disappoint and I trusted her judgement completely. Mel created a really magical New Year’s Eve wedding that I could not have imagined without her. She was great to work with, and made the whole process really fun and easy. I would recommend Mel for any event, if you want to create something really special and enjoy the process!

Couldn’t ask for more from a wedding planner

Mel is a life-saver!

She handled everything gracefully and with high attention to detail - from last-minute unforeseen vendor issues to planning around our more difficult / nuanced requests. She took great care from the very beginning to understand exactly what we wanted to get out of our wedding, which quickly reassured us that our wedding would feel unique, special, personal and memorable in all the ways we’d hoped…

And indeed it did. The wedding itself went off without any problems - Mel kept everything moving like clockwork, and stayed until comfortable that her job was done.

We’d recommend Mel to anyone, without hesitation! Thank you again, Mel, and best of luck!

We couldn't have done it without you!

Mel, what can we say, we literally could not have done it without you. You made the whole experience of planning a wedding an enjoyable one and it was without doubt the best investment we made. So many of our guests commented that we “literally thought of everything” and this is testament to your incredible attention to detail. You just got it and understood our vision of the weekend perfectly. You were everywhere and nowhere on the day, pulling the strings perfectly from behind the scenes to make sure everything ran perfectly, which it did. We honestly cannot thank you enough and have and will recommend you to anyone and everyone.

First class support when you need it the most!

Mel was amazing on our big day, she made sure all the finer details were taken care of, as well as making sure we were looked after with sweet little touches. It meant we could enjoy our day and had peace of mind that everything was under control. Everything just seemed to happen magically and our guests commented on how well organised and smooth everything went. All I can say is - to any future brides who are stressing out about the logistics - hire Mel!

Couldn't have asked for more

Mel - we genuinely cannot thank you enough for your help at our wedding! I don’t exaggerate when I say it wouldn't have been our dream day if it wasn’t for Mel. The entire event ran smoothly and was indeed the best day of our lives all thanks to her planning and preparations :)


Melanie is fantastic - from the beginning she understood what we were looking for from our day, and was brilliant at helping us organise some of the finer details of the wedding, but without pushing a full design/styling package which some planners/stylists do.


She is a complete pleasure to work with - she and we didn't hesitate in reaching out to her when we felt we needed help or guidance during the planning process. Equally, she was always more than happy to help, and always responded swiftly. We genuinely looked forward to having our planning catch-ups over Zoom with her. Everything always felt easy as she was on-top of all the planning detail, especially when both of us were busy at work.


True to form, she was very organised on the day and was calm and collected, and very deft in dealing with any unforeseen issues, or things which may have differed from the scheduled plan. Needless to say, I was both relieved and excited to see her on the morning of our day as it wouldn't have been possible to organise the day without her. She really went above and beyond for our day.
